The ICC and IAPMO will meet in February to begin work on creating joint plumbing and mechanical codes.

The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) and the International Code Council (ICC) will meet in February to begin work in earnest in an effort to determine whether the organizations can agree on all of the essential elements, which would be needed in order to create joint plumbing and mechanical codes, according to representatives of both organizations.

IAPMO and ICC Board members and staff met in Little Rock, AR, on Nov. 19, 2005, to continue their ongoing discussion of a joint venture to create single plumbing and mechanical codes for the country. The executive committees of both boards and key staff met for several hours in the Clinton Presidential Library and Museum following a private tour of the Library and onsite lunch.

The two organizations agreed to reconvene in San Antonio, TX, in February.
